Police in South Carolina say a 4-year-old girl has been taken from her home, following a break-in that left her mother beaten and hospitalized.
The New York Post reports: Heidi Todd was snatched amid a break-in Tuesday at a Johns Island home that left her mom “brutally” beaten, news station WCIV reported.
The mom, who was transported to a hospital, told police the attacker was a thin Hispanic male, 25 to 30 years old, with short hair.
An Amber alert was not issued due to lack of information regarding the suspect, according to officials.
Police said the missing tot is one of four kids, two of whom were home at the time of the incident. Her siblings were reportedly unharmed.
The missing girl’s father was at U.S. Coast Guard training when the home invasion occurred, authorities said.
The Post & Courier released a sketch of the suspect (see video below), reporting: A sketch of a “person of interest” showed a man in his 30s who had been seen days earlier in the woods behind the home, the city’s police chief said. The man had facial tattoos of a lightning bolt and a flame.
